So What Will It Be Raider Nation?

    Of course the Raiders are at the mercy of Tim Tebow against Kyle Orton and the Kansas City Chiefs, but they still must handle their business against the Chargers.

About Those Idiots Who Bet OU

We got a late Christmas present. In addition, my old lady records the game, but the replay stops 1 play before Blake Bell scores on a 21-yard TD run in the waning seconds that covers the spread if you bet OU. I had OU for $100, forgetting my constant omen never to beat them because heart and head collide, and figured I was dead in the water. Go figure.

2011: Calling Cards

    There also is a tale about Super Bowl Sunday in Dallas last February, but that’s a story best told on a rainy day.
    Nothing could have been sweeter for the Dallas Mavericks than capturing their 1st NBA title, particularly by beating the Miami Heat, but a close second was Dirk and his mates wiping out the Lakers in a sweep that still resonates in L.A.
    For me though, nothing in 2011 compares to Game 6 of the World Series in St. Louis, where the Rangers were a strike away from claiming their 1st championship before David Freese drilled a fastball to right over the head of Nelson Cruz and the Cardinals, who were on life support just to make the playoffs a month before (not everyone thought such though), began a seemingly impossible rally in extra innings that resulted in the club winning its 11th banner.
    Hours before Game 7, which was practically an afterthought as far as Cards fans were concerned, I strolled up to a betting window in 1 of my favorite sportsbooks (Santa Fe Station in Vegas) like the cocky young fella I used to be, decked out in a classic power blue Cards’ jersey (think the ’80s and the “White Rat”) with the Wizard’s name and number in red letters on the back and flashing the biggest and shittiest grin 1 could imagine. Even the betting clerk couldn’t resist smirking.
    “You know why I’m here,” I said sarcastically, confident as I’ve ever been before wagering a bet.
    “Good luck,” he said.
    I didn’t need it. I knew my money was as good as gold.

Rondo For Westbrook?

    We like J.A. Adande’s suggestion that the Thunder should deal Russell Westbrook for Stephen Curry, but we’d like it even more if they traded Westbrook for the more athletic Rajon Rondo since Danny Ainge foolishly wants to move him.

Moody Blues

    Kevin Durant had to deal with another Russell Westbrook blowup during the Thunder’s win over the Grizzlies Wednesday night that has many NBA fans talking, but Durant and Scott Brooks brushed it off as business as usual. Is it really though?
